The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. But the Great teacher INSPIRES ~ Willam Arthur Ward
I realize that the focus of my class is me and only me; to do the best I can each and every time I step on the mat.
However the role of the teacher is vital. The teacher is the conductor – moving the energy of the room, grabbing our minds so we have no option but to focus on us, our breath, moving as one. Commanding and correcting with compassion, a great instructor becomes our mind so that we don’t have to think.
Challenging, sweaty – hell yes.
And OH SO SWEET!
